HSA4 and GGA4: remarkable conservation despite 300-Myr divergence.


The chicken (GGA) and human (HSA) genomes diverged around 300-350 Myr ago. Due to this large phylogenetic distance, significant synteny conservation has not been anticipated between the genomes of the two species. However, Zoo-FISH with HSA4 chromosome-specific paint on chicken metaphase chromosomes shows that the human chromosome corresponds largely to the… (More)
